Weekly Running Log Update (16 May 2011 ~ 22 May 2011)

Did kettlebell and yoga for core fitness training on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  I ran on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday for a total of 36 miles.  Saturday was a rest day, but did 50 minutes of yoga.

The upcoming week will be a light week since I’m planning to run a 5K race on Friday.  I’ll do my kettlebell and yoga routine on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.  On Tuesday I’ll do 6 x 400 intervals and rest on Thursday (with a little restorative yoga).  In lieu of a tempo run, I plan to run a 5K this Friday, and if the conditions are good, hopefully run around an 18:30.  I’ll do a moderate long run on Sunday, maybe 10 to 12 miles since I have a half marathon scheduled the following Sunday (June 5th).

Training Results this Week:

Monday – Kettlebell (26 minutes), Yoga (20 minutes)

Tuesday – Intervals (Treadmill, 2% incline), 7 x 800s with 90 second rest between intervals.  1.5 mile warm-up, 1.25 mile cooldown.  Ran intervals in 2:51 per interval (5:42/mile pace).

Wednesday – Kettlebell (26 minutes), Yoga (20 minutes)

Thursday – Tempo, 1 mile warm-up, 8.5 miles tempo (6:35 minute pace), 1 mile cooldown.  Felt pretty strong on this run.

Friday – Kettlebell (26 minutes), Yoga (20 minutes)

Saturday – Yoga (50 minutes)

Sunday – Long Run around the Yokohama (~ 19 miles, average 7:39 pace).  Bit of a struggle this week.
